This prescription bottle lamp shade helps shine a light on visits to the doctor.

A worn-down lamp shade got a modern makeover after designer Emily Seilhamer upcycled dozens of prescription bottles to create a new lamp shade. The lamp's soft amber glow elicits a sense of relaxation that would make this light source a perfect addition to a bedside table. The empty bottles hang from the lamp's frame, appearing as a whimsical, but noiseless, wind chime.

The upcycling of everyday objects is a specialty for Emily Seilhamer, the designer behind this lamp. Seilhamer was disheartened by the amount of pill bottles that people use in their day-to-day lives that simply get thrown away when emptied. The designer wanted to provide these objects with longevity, creating something meaningful and beautiful.
